CP Owohunwa further highlighted the team’s terms of reference to include: “First, to aggregate all allegations, suspicions, insinuations from all sources, in the cause of interaction with the family, friends and the medical components, with a view to establishing facts, identify pieces of vital evidence that may support criminal investigation.

Two, to deploy all forensic, technical and other vital assets that are relevant to the investigation of homicide cases of this nature towards supporting the investigation process.

In a solemn announcement made during a service at its Lagos headquarters, Fountain of Life Church unveiled Jimmy Odukoya as the new Senior Pastor. This significant appointment follows the passing of the church’s revered founder, Taiwo Odukoya, in the United States on 7 August at the age of 67.

Addressing the congregation, Rotimi Okpaise, a prominent pastor within the church, revealed that the late Taiwo Odukoya had shared his succession plan with the Board of Trustees before his demise. The Board, with unanimous agreement, elected Jimmy Odukoya to take the reins as Senior Pastor and chairperson of the board.

Taiwo Odukoya had established the Fountain of Life Church in 1992 and served as its senior pastor until his passing. Tragically, his wife, Bimbo Odukoya, a well-known television host of ‘Single and Married,’ lost her life in the 2005 Sosoliso plane crash in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Here are some lesser-known facts about Jimmy Odukoya:

Jimmy Odukoya is a multifaceted talent, known for his roles as a Nollywood actor and musician, debuting in 2016 with the film ‘Baby Shower.’

His acting prowess shone in Netflix’s ‘Woman King,’ where he played Oba Ade, a lead role. He has also graced the screen in other films like ‘Lifting the Veil,’ ‘I am Nazzy,’ and ‘Oga Pastor,’ among others.

His remarkable talent in acting earned him a nomination for the Africa Magic Viewers Choice Award in the “Best Supporting Actor of the Year” category.

Beyond his entertainment career, Jimmy is a motivational speaker, dancer, and a fitness enthusiast, demonstrating a wide range of interests.

In a candid interview with actress Iretiola Doyle in January 2021, Jimmy Odukoya emphasized that his role as a pastor does not interfere with his acting career, stating, “How does being a pastor affect my acting career? I don’t believe it, some people have different opinions, one is if I am an actor, I should be a Christian actor, and I say there is no such thing.”

The appointment of Jimmy Odukoya as the Senior Pastor marks a new chapter in the Fountain of Life Church’s history, as they continue their mission to serve their congregation and community.



United Bank for Africa (UBA) Plc, has reaffirmed its commitment to prioritise the welfare of its staff and their families reflecting the current economic realities and its impact on living conditions.

To this end, the bank’s Board of Directors have announced the implementation of a cost of living adjustment for its staff effective immediately

Also in line with its commitment to promote staff for excellent performance every year, UBA had in March 2023, announced the promotion of over 1,500 staff across Africa, and had also elevated close to 1,000 staff in 2022.

UBA’s Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer, Oliver Alawuba, who made the announcement, said, “We are aware of the impact of recent economic policy pronouncements on prices and your capacity to meet your financial commitments to family and personal needs. As an organisation focused on the well-being of our people, I am pleased to inform you that the Board of UBA Plc has approved a Welfare Allowance for all employees.”

Alawubaexplained that the decision to adjust the staff's remuneration package once again demonstrates UBA's unwavering commitment to maintaining the standard of living for its employees at a level that is commensurate with prevailing economic conditions.

“This move will serve to alleviate the financial burdens faced by our staff and their families, reinforcing the bank's position as a responsible and caring employer,” he explained.

He took time out to appreciate the staff for their effort and dedication and hard work of its employees, which remains the bedrock of its success, as he noted that the bank recognises the critical role played by its workforce in navigating challenges and ensuring the continued growth of the institution.

“My profound appreciation to you for your commitment to our corporate goals and adherence to our core values, as demonstrated in our remarkable half-year 2023 results. By enhancing staff welfare, we aim to boost employee morale and foster a conducive and rewarding work environment that empowers employees to thrive both personally and professionally,” the GMD added.
